  new england snowboard group on yahoo
Posted by: - 02-13-2010, 02:12 AM - Forum: General - No Replies

Hey everyone!

In anticipation of the coming winter (Northern Hemisphere), thought
I'd throw this out there.

Background -- I used to post here a lot from around 1996 - 2002 or so,
but just got really busy and wasn't snowboarding as much. Posted a few
things past few years, but not too much, just when I have time. "Know"
Champ, Dave R., quite a few others still around.

I'll be teaching snowboarding part-time at Mount Snow, VT this winter
and really am getting everything into place for an epic winter of
snowboarding (and surfing).

So, for New Englanders, last year I started a small New England
Snowboarder group on Yahoo. Not sure how large it will get, nor do I
really care. It's just a few friends and family members now (around 20
people). There are a couple skiers too, which I like (used to race
skis in High School, full time snowboarder since 1993). We talk about
the things talked about here - technique, reports, technology,
forecasts, etc., but all New England. Even non-New Englanders can join
if they're curious about the place snowboarding started in the 1970s
(VT).

[url]http://sports.groups.yahoo.com/group/newengland_snowboarder/?yguid=126554800[/url]

Most of us also surf (and some skate), so you get a little of that
too.

Check it out if you want!

Thanks and pray for lots of snow!!

I can only quote the classics: "Go that way. Very, very fast. If
something gets in your way, turn."

Seriously, you're already doing the right thing by taking a lesson.
That will get you headed in the right direction technically more than
any typed advice ever will.

Just from a practical standpoint, make sure you have some good pants and
gloves. You will spend a lot of time as a newb on either your ass or
your knees and pushing your self up off the snow with your hands.
Avoiding getting wet will make your day a lot more comfortable.

Have fun!

By all accounts, the "No Gomer" wrist guard is the best made, providing
beefy wrist and thumb protection that fits over top of your gloves.
They were originally made by a couple of doctors in Quebec who then sold
their interest to Auclair Sports. You'll have to contact them directly
to find a retailer. Here's the link:

Google "no gomer" to find quite a few glowing reviews/testimonials, and
also frustration that they aren't more easily available.

Symmetrical stances allow you to exploit riding switch, which is fun and
also necessary if you are at all interested in freestyle. They also
allow you to land jumps more easily. Furthermore, they are popular and
therefore ski schools sometimes mandate that instructors teach in that
stance.

However, if your goal is pure carving, then forward stances work better
IMO. The reason is that they allow you to keep your weight more over
the edge, and also to use your knees and legs more, whereas straight
across means hanging your butt out over the edge and using a lot of
ankle flexion.

Of course, you get some stuff in-between. Rob Stevens, who is the
national director for CASI (Canadian Association of Snowboard
Instructors) and also a level IV instructor, rides +30, -5 or something
like that in softies. He posts quite a lot on bomberonline, well worth
searching for his posts for tips.

Get two paned lenses, preferably polarizing, with a fan.
